McDaniel v. Wills

Posted By on Mon, Mar 9, 2009 at 11:04 AM

Brummett blogs about some interplay between Attorney General Dustin McDaniel and House Speaker Robbie Wills. Looks to me more of same: Wills is standing in the way of McDaniel's ethics legislation because 1) he sees no problem with legislators turning into lobbyists and 2) he sees no problem with lobbyists slopping legislators, even by remote control. You don't get elected House speaker by proposing to undo this cozy system. 

For cover, Wills blames McDaniel for opposing ethics legislation the House approved two years ago. This also happens to be true. It also happens to be true that Wills supported Robert Herzfeld in McDaniel's race for attorney general and prima politicos sometimes have long memories.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
